01-02 The Tim Fer­riss Show

Men's Health (UK) - - Voice Coahes -

The au­thor of New York Times best­sellers The 4-Hour Work Week, Body and Chef wrote the book(s) on speedy self­im­prove­ment. His pod­cast, in which he “de­con­structs world-class per­form­ers”, reg­u­larly tops the itunes busi­ness chart, as well as Ap­ple’s list of the best pod­casts. His sub­jects range from start-ups to stand-ups, and from ath­letes to Arnie. The in­ter­views can be long – some stretch­ing past the three-hour mark – but they’re al­ways a pro­duc­tive use of your time. Like that? Try The James Al­tucher Show, hosted by the en­tre­pre­neur, au­thor and chess mas­ter. His guests in­clude skater Tony Hawk, former as­tro­naut Mike Mas­simino and, er, Tim Fer­riss.

03-04 Jocko Pod­cast

Jocko Willink is a former com­man­der of the most dec­o­rated spe­cial op­er­a­tions unit in the Iraq War, who went on to be­come the of­fi­cer in charge of train­ing all Navy Seals on the US west coast. In short, he is one of the tough­est men you’ll ever lis­ten to. (Even the name of his pod­cast is Bs-free.) Learn the fun­da­men­tals of train­ing and lead­er­ship from the grav­elvoiced Brazil­ian jiu jitsu black belt and au­thor of busi­ness books such as Dis­ci­pline Equals Free­dom, who wakes up at 4.30am to “get after it”. Like that? Try the Un­beat­able Mind Pod­cast with Mark Divine, pre­sented by a re­tired Navy Seal com­man­der­turned-au­thor who grills ath­letes and ex-mil­i­tary per­son­nel for life strate­gies.

05-06 10% Hap­pier with Dan Har­ris

The Emmy Award-win­ning Har­ris was a co-an­chor on the Amer­i­can TV in­sti­tu­tion Good Morn­ing Amer­ica – un­til he suf­fered a panic at­tack live on air, which prompted him to con­sider med­i­ta­tion. Con­verted, he wrote a book about it, also called 10% Hap­pier (and a fol­low-up, Med­i­ta­tion for Fid­gety Skep­tics). In these meet­ings of mind­ful­ness devo­tees, guests muse upon hap­pi­ness in its many forms and ask whether striv­ing for suc­cess and en­light­en­ment are mu­tu­ally exclusive. Like that? Try Hap­pier with Gretchen Rubin, in which the US blog­ger, speaker and au­thor of best­selling books Hap­pier at Home and The Hap­pi­ness Project of­fers “prac­ti­cal, man­age­able” ad­vice.

07-08 The Dis­sect Pod­cast

Mark Twight founded the hard-line fa­cil­ity Gym Jones, which put Salt Lake City, Utah, on the work­out map by mould­ing the 300 Spar­tans and Su­per­man him­self, Henry Cav­ill. With fel­low alumni Michael Blevins, Paul Roberts and Ross Mcgar­vey, who “pre­fer verbs over nouns, ac­tion over words and ends over means”, Twight has started a new fa­cil­ity, the Sect, and this pod­cast. You’ll get schooled on what they dis­par­age as “fit­ness­ing”, but also learn that real trans­for­ma­tions are far more pro­found. Like that? Try Start­ing Strength by old-school coach Mark Rip­petoe, who su­per­sets ex­pert in­ter­views with tu­to­ri­als, “Ask Rip” Q& As and dis­courses on mod­ern mas­culin­ity.
